The marriage between Prince Charles and the late Princess Diana was one of convenience.

Charles was under no illusion in being in love with the much younger woman and this was made quite plain in an interview, when he was asked if he was in love to which he replied :“ whatever in love means”.

You could argue with the great credibility that Charles’s lack of affection for his wife set the stage for everything else which took place during their turbulent union.

And it was the reason behind the numerous affairs by both players.

As I wrote in my previous article, royal affairs are nothing new. Through the various houses, ( Plantagenet, Tudor, Stuart, Hanover, Saxe-Coburg and Windsor) successive British monarchs were prolific philanderers.

But the difference with Charles and Diana was that the latter was arguably more prolific than the former.

How so, I hear you ask?

There was the heart surgeon, the ex-military personnel, the young Arab playboy and so on.

But there was one.

Captain James Hewitt.

That an affair took place between Hewitt and Princess Diana isn’t in question; what’s in dispute is whether the tryst between the two began much earlier than it has been publicly admitted.


Prince Harry, the Duke of Sussex.

For the longest time, it has been alleged that Harry’s the progeny of Captain Hewitt and despite the repeated and strenuous denials, this story has simply refused to go away.

But why should it matter now?

The ostracism of Harry, Meghan and their children from the royal family is why it matters more than ever.
